Project scope and objective

The proposed operation contemplates a Senior Unsecured Loan to Banco Regional S.A.E.C.A. (“Regional”) of up to US$ 50million (the "Loan") to be financed by BID Invest. The Loan will be comprised of two tranches: (i) Tranche I: for an amount of up to US$12 million for a term of seven years, and (ii) Tranche II: for an amount up to US$38 million for a term of five years. The funds of the Loan will be used to finance sub-projects in companies within these sectors: agriculture, livestock, and agribusiness. The Project will include a Technical Assistance (“TA”) that will help Regional identify and monitor the financing of green lending opportunities that fall within emerging climate smart agriculture criteria.
